North City Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Completely Refurbished Space Offering Modern, Bright Open Plan Accommodation

Recently renovated by award winning A2 Architects, my 2nd floor, open plan studio apartment offers the perfect location to stay in Dublin. Situated right beside the symbol of Dublin, the Ha’penny Bridge, you are in the beating heart of the city.

Everything is within walking distance, with Temple Bar and Trinity College for example just across the bridge and most other major sights a few minutes away . The airport bus is only 100 metres away, not to mention all the bars and restaurants just outside the door. Experiencing the true essence of Dublin couldn’t be any easier.

Previously a 66-metres (710 sq ft) two-bedroom apartment, it was renovated to an open plan, creating a large space that allows full access to natural light. From the window overlooking the river Liffey, you get a great view of the sunset and the feeling of the city passing you by. It’s deceptively easy to just sit at the window and watch as people cross the Ha’penny bridge. I have Wi-fi, a great bathroom and fully functioning kitchen.

Dublin is a conveniently compact city and my apartment is nestled right in the centre of it all, allowing for a hassle free, thoroughly enjoyable place to experience it to the full. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Location cannot be better. You are overlooking the River Liffey and directly above the beautiful Ha'penny Bridge. Cross the bridge and you are in Temple Bar with its numerous bars, restaurants, vintage clothes shops, Project Arts Centre, Gallery of Photography, Irish Film Institute and many other attractions.

Dublin two main pedestrian shopping streets, Grafton and Henry St are about 5 minutes away.

Trinity College with its famous Library is 3 minutes walk.

Dublin is experiencing a Renaissance after a long recession and every week a new exciting restaurant, cultural space or play is opening. It is a great time to be visiting!

The Aircoach bus from the airport drops you 5 minutes away. The LUAS tram stops in Jervis St 2 minutes away but the apartment is so central you probably won't be using public transport at all.

I personally wouldn't recommend car hire as a lot of the streets are one way and it can be tricky to drive around if you are not familiar with the city.

I have over on Airbnb over 5* review for this property under 'Designer Apartment in the heart of Dublin' but it works out cheaper to book directly to avoid the Airbnb fees.

Great location, clean and super friendly owner!

  • 4 of 5

The location can't be beat, that is for sure! But with that wonderful downtown location came noise. I know people commented, and surprisingly many said it was not all that bad. If you are a light sleeper, this area is loud. We were there Monday- Thursday and it was loud every night into the wee hours of the morning. Again though, you can't beat the location. You also can't beat how friendly and helpful Dardo is! He is super accommodating, the apartment is amazing and the bed is super comfy! Even with the noise, I would stay here again for sure!

Wonderful apartment, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Dardo was an exemplary host, his communication was on point and his apartment was beautiful. I felt very at home because the bed was so comfortable. It is in the epicenter of everything so we did not need a vehicle the whole time we were able to walk to everything. Parking is not the easiest or the cheapest. We parked in the multilevel garage around the corner for €65 for one night. City transit is great so if anything park far and take the bus into town.

Great place. Well located. Very clean and efficient.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 3 night stay in Dardo's very cool flat right on the Liffe River across from the hip and lively Temple Bar area in Dublin. The only reason we can't give this flat a 5 star rating is because if you don't like street noise late at night, this could be an issue for you. My wife and I are in our early sixties and we loved it, noise and all but it is on the fringe of party central. We kept the windows open so might be quieter with them closed. Very clean and hip decor, comfortable bed, loads of books and entertainment if Dublin walking wears you out. We got there way early in the morning, well before check in and Maria met us, took care of our luggage and raced to clean the place from guests that had just left so we could settle in earlier than normal. We loved it and recommend it highly.

excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We were sent excellent clear instructions by Dardo & the taxi dropped us right outside the front door where Maria met us & let us drop our bags off we had arrived earlier than expected the studio apartment was large spacious & well equipped the location was excellent right in the centre of everything shops bars restaurants no need for a car plenty of local transport with regular buses running & also plenty of taxes around.

the apartment being right next to the Ha penny bridge there is always people walking up & down.

To sum up we have stayed in numerous apartments over the years in different countries & this would be one place whch we would return to when we visit Dublin
